This week Seagate introduced a slew of new external storage devices for their Mac and BlackArmor line. From the new lineup, Mac users will most likely appreciate the new FreeAgent Go Pro™ for Mac Drive which packs in FireWire 800 or FireWire 4000 along with a 7,200RPM hard drive. That makes it fast enough for video professionals to work with, and anyone who needs serious performance. The hard drive also comes with a dock. But what really makes it enticing, is its pricing. You can get a 250GB version for $129, a 320GB for $149 and a $189.99 for 500GB – that makes it much more affordably priced than other ultra portable Firewire 7.200RPM hard drives. Another cool new product that stands out is the FreeAgent Go Dock+. This new dock sports a similar form factor to the original FreeAGent Go Dock, but it also provides three USB ports so that the dock can double as a USB hub. This is a convenient way to eliminate clutter on your desk.
Three new products have also been introduced to the BlackArmor family. The BlackArmor NAS220 Storage Server offers remote access, the ability to back up data for up to 20 PCs n a network, support for up to 4TB of storage. Read on for more details on all of the new products.
